Karl Lagerfeld Introduces Neo Coco Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld never fails to impress, and his latest Chanel collection was no exception.

The designer described the 80 piece S/S 2013 collection as "Neo Coco", which is a more youthful and fresher spin on the fashion house's founder Coco Chanel.

Unkle Karl explained:

"It’s nothing [to do] with minimalist. But suddenly, we had the mood of clean. And fresh, light, but not shapeless. It’s about proportion, different volumes. For me, it’s completely refreshed."

The theme of energy was also prevalent in the Grand Palais as models weaved through the wind turbines lining the solar panel catwalk.

As for the clothes, they were exactly what you'd expect: classy and fabulous.

High fashion ain't cheap, and neither is staying in one of the most iconic designer of all time's hotel room!

TIME magazine has made a list of the top 100 most influential fashion icons since 1923, but it's who they left off the list that's really creating a buzz.

Noticeably missing from the list of designers, models, photographers, editors, muses, and stylists include Rachel Zoe, Tyra Banks, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Sarah Jessica Parker — and that's just off the top of our head!

Geez. TIME's selection committee is strict!

So much for being fabulous and classy.

A new biography about Coco Chanel is hitting shelves this fall and the author makes some explosive claims about the fashion icon.

In Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life, biographer Lisa Chaney reveals Chanel did drugs, embraced bisexuality and had an affair with surreal artist Salvador Dalí while he was married.

And for anyone who challenges her claims, Lisa has the evidence to back it up — or so she says.

Sounds like a juicy read!

Emma Watson might be able to handle the hectic schedule of filming a hit movie, but when it came to touring Coco Chanel’s apartment, she found it “overwhelming.”

The 21-year-old starlet was recently flown to Paris by the fashion label ahead of a film premiere. And while in Paris she was taken to tour the place the Chanel founder called home.

Reveals Watson:

“My most glamorous moment was probably when Chanel flew me to Paris to try on premiere outfit. It was ridiculous — I went around Coco Chanel’s apartment! I found that really overwhelming.”

As for choosing the right outfit, Watson adds:

“It’s really weird, you just know when you’ve got the dress on. I’m like, right that’s it, no need to look any more, this is the one.”

We'd love to get a tour of Coco Chanel's's apartment!
